Yeeooooowza!

It is a tale of brotherly love........not really. So this is how it went down. I have been dragging the kids around all morning trying to get some things taken care of for enrichment and we were at our last stop. Target. Whew, all I needed to do was exchange the boots I had gotten for Grey for a size for Will. Not to difficult right? I was also irritated because our van is in getting painted so I have the 3 kids in the back of our outback, which needless to say, it is a tight fit and a pain to get everyone in and out, and when they are in close enough a proximity to touch each other, there is never a dull moment in the backseat. So, I hauled all of the kids out of the car and into the rain. I always have Will hold Grey's hand while we walk thru the parking lot. Greyson of course, does not approve of this form of bondage and was running around the car away from William. Will gets mad and decides the only way to solve the problem is to shove his brother for not agreeing to hold his hand. What happens next? Well the rest is hearsay because I didn't actually witness the blessed event, I was pulling Mojo out of the car, but from the magnitude of screaming and the location of Grey's soaked little body lying in a puddle next to the sidewalk, I deduce that he smacked his head on the curb. Poor kid............this is what he looks like now :(
At least he was a good enough sport to let me take some pics, but I don't think that the camera does it justice. He created quite the uproar of sympathy in the store. Oh, and thanks to Mindy Collasurdo for checking on me and my cart of wailing children to see if I needed any help :)

Poor thing do you need help with anything for tommorow? If you need me to watch yoru kids at all during the day let me konw. Also is it at 6 or 6:30? I can't remember and I so want to be there. Thanks.

Ah man! Can I say "Thank You" 100 times for doing my job for me!!! Next time drop the boys off, we just chilled at home and watched movies. And that BUMP...holy cow! He got a good one. I love the last shot, he looks so much like Matthew there. That "this is the best smile you are getting MOM!" look is the BEST!
Sorry you had such a crazy day. Sorry once again you had to do it! BIG HUGS!!!!!!

Oh my what a goose egg! It hurts just looking at it! Poor little guy! :( Seriously when you were telling me about it I would never have imagined it to be SO big! Ah... all in the name of Enrichment.

Ouch! Bet that gave him a headache!! So back up a bit...I didn't know you got a van?!? Let me guess, you got it like 3 years ago when you left me...

Ambyr said...

OUCH! He and Austin have matching foreheads now! I'm so sorry! I am more than willing to watch Mojo or your boys when you need to run errands if you would like.

Stacy said...

Wow, that's a sweet goose egg. At least it's not a zit. Something to be thankful for. I give 5 stars to Will for that one.

Youch! His face is adorable though. I couldn't help laughing hysterically.

Heather said...

Ouch!!! Poor kid! Don't you love it when you don't actually see how these things happened? You don't know who to punish! :)

The joys of life with boys! Good thing there are so many good times to make up for the bad!

Heather said...

Oh, and I tagged you!

Carlie said...

Ya gotta love big brothers! That is quite the bump- good thing you have a doc close at hand! I don't envy the headache he probably had! He's still adorable- bump and all.

That stinks! I think it comes with boy territory!
